Serious about what?


That Georges is so uber good looking, and the UFC is trying to make him ugly(the guy they've basically been begging back for years). It's possible for him to not look like a dime piece in a poster. He's no Anthony Pettis.


I never mentioned GSP. I made a joke about how terrible the UFC posters are.

BTW I was worried for a second you were going to make it a week without making a completely irrelevant Anthony Pettis reference, glad we got that out of the way.

Lol, dude, you realize I only do it because it stirs you up, and I can't even figure out why. I'm just messing.

Even if I was being half sarcastic, and have criticisms of his fighting ability... he is a beautiful man.

I didn't watch the vid but LOLed at "nearly catatonic". There were guys at the UFC this past weekend making 10k, don't even want to think how little someone in pancrase is making to put themselves in a catatonic state cutting weight. Yikes.

Mark Hunt blasts Dana White with profane Instagram post after removal from UFC Sydney main event

UFC says they removed him for health concerns (and he had just written a piece talking about some of his health issues). Hunt says they took him off because of his lawsuit against them.

Man, this sport really needs to step up their production. Every UFC PPV feels the same.

In general I'm pro-fighter against the UFC, however...

It's kind of strange to be mad at your employer for not featuring you in your show of choice while you're suing your employer and publicly criticizing your employer.

Also, Mark Hunt wanted the fight against Brock Lesnar, made a bunch of money off of it, and knew there was a chance that Lesnar could be juicing.
Fire GarPax! How do you start the rebuilding process by trading a draft pick for money? I know it was a late pick, but so were Butler, Taj Gibson, Draymond Green, and Isiah Thomas. The Warriors wanted the guy, and they're good at evaluating talent.

Not only did he think there was a chance, he came out and said Brock Lesnar is juicing, and he's going to knock him out. Acting surprised or appalled after was weird on his end.

What? Think about the repercussions if your employer(who in this case has a monopoly on your industry) can fire you if you take non-spurious legal action against them. There need to be protections against vindictive treatment after you make (legitimate or arguably legitimate) complaints.

Well, I believe that the fighters should have a union that protects the fighters. Also, with bellator growing, I'm not sure if the UFC has a monopoly.

But in how many jobs can you make an Instagram post where you cuss out your employer and not be fired? Especially in show business? It'd be like if an actor was publicly criticizing a director while they were shooting a movie. Of course the director may cut the number of lines you have or cut out some of your scenes. Or they'd fire you.

Perry-Ponzinnibbio should be a pay per view headliner. We're lucky to be able to see it for free in HD as the co co-main event. Should smash all previous ratings' records. That card will peak in the middle. But either way it's straight fire.
